Warblers and allies (Sylviidae)
Where to see them
Evergreen woodland is good place to see firecrests, but they range around in flocks of other small birds during autumn and winter. Then, they can sometimes appear in gardens, along hedgerows and in scrub. Firecrests breed in the UK - mainly in south-east England - though only in very small numbers. Some arrive from across the North Sea in autumn, along with goldcrests.
When to see them
Firecrests are easiest to see in autumn and winter.
What they eat
Firecrests eat tiny morsels like spiders, moth eggs and other small insect food.
